Can you tell us something more about you and about your work?
I’ve just graduated from Drama Centre London in September last year. During my training I spent 8 weeks at the Boris Shchukin Theatre Institute in Moscow. Alongside working as an actor in London I am also a dog walker for ‘Paws Galore Pet Sitters’ which I absolutely love, and I’m in the process of setting up my own dog walking company.
We saw you recently in John Hopkins’ "Find your way home" that is a snapshot of homosexuality in the 70s. Of course society has changed much since then. What do you think about the play?
Find Your Way Home is a portrayal of homosexuality in the 70s, but it’s also a play about the value of marriage and parenthood. Find Your Way Home was a very outspoken play when it was written in 1974 and is still shocking even by the standards of today’s audiences. I think the play reveals how far society has come it terms of its understanding of these themes, particularly concerning homosexuality, and yet sheds light on how far we still have yet to go.
What kind of theatre do you like?
I enjoy devised theatre. I also love supporting new writing. I recently went to a launch night for Metamorph Theatre Company, which was created by two graduates in my year from Drama Centre London.
What is next for you?
I’ve recently finished shooting a trailer for Masks a feature film with Grapevine Productions and I start rehearsals for Lolita By Vladimir Nabokov at the Lion and Unicorn Theatre next week with the Theatre Collective and As well as plenty more dog walks for clients in North London!
Thank you, George!
